A new one-shot is coming from Gabriel Hardman and Image Comics this February. Gabriel Hardman is the writer/ artist who brought us Star Wars Legacy and Invisible Republic. The Belfry is a horror genre comic – get ready for this tale about naked bat people. When an airliner crashes in a remote jungle, everyone walks away unscathed, only to find they can’t escape the lush, brutal world of The Belfry.

Hardman has voiced some comments on his motivation in creating this stand alone one-shot. “This is my dark trip into a world that’s a little surreal, a little nihilistic, and all terrifying.” Hardman’s wish to flex some different storytelling muscles has inspired this violent tale. “There’s beauty as well in the lush art style I’ve adopted for this story. And naked bat people.”

The Belfry one-shot is being published by Image Comics and has a release date lined up for Wednesday, February 22nd.
